Dropbox For Linux is Now Available!

It's here! Dropbox for Linux is finally available and ready for your everyday use. Whats great about this service is you get 2 gb of space and it creates a folder in your home directory ~/Dropbox

http://www.ubuntu-unleashed.com/2008/10 ... nally.html

There's a package for Debian Lenny
http://vanderkussen.org/2008/9/12/dropb ... bian-lenny

works in KDE as well as Gnome. just run Nautilus, and after a few seconds a sign-up wizard appeares.

By the way, if you sign up now while it's in beta you get 5 GB of space for free. After the full release new free users will only get 1 GB, but those who sign up during the beta stage will continue to have 5 GB.

I have two questions
!. I have installed nautilus-dropbox (in my kubuntu) but nautilus is giving following error;

Code: Select all

usama@alpha:~$ nautilus
Initializing nautilus-dropbox 0.5.0
libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Failed to execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session
dropboxd: no process killed

2. I checked their website and there is a beautiful ascii-art at the end of website, written "Dropbox". How can they write like this? Is there any software/website or they did this manually?
Thanks

Update
I googled and installed "dbus-x11" and now following is the output;

Code: Select all

usama@alpha:~$ nautilus
Initializing nautilus-dropbox 0.5.0
dropboxd: no process killed

Thanks

did you try logging out and in again?
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?
